    INTERIOR EFFORTS...(lots of pics)

    Me and my wonderful gf did a few touches to my interior today!!

    We got hold of some white leather and trimmed up the front pillars and inner wing mirror base plates. Heres some pics + some other little interior pics!!

    BEFORE...



    removed the centre console and dial surround...



    had the dash repsrayed white along with the dial surround, also fitted white dials...



    front pillars before...



    got them off...



    me and the mrs took a good afternoon to trim them in leather, along with the inner mirror bases, looks perfect, most people are suprised to hear that we did it ourselves!!



    my tailor made white gaitors with black stitching...



    fitted...



    all in!!...



    wheel polished up (pearlescent metallic white)...



    This pic best shows the colour of the car (two tone pearlescent purple)...meant to go black to purple...



    hmm... kinda puts it into perspective so far!!



    I'M HAPPY!!

    easy to keep clean!! - i have nicked plenty of kfc wet wipes... while i was working with the leather it got pretty dirty and i found that wet wipes were perfect for cleaning all the dirt off!!

    i have also got a pulsing neon mounted behind the central air vents which flashes to the music and i've got a laser crab which projects from the rear arm rest up to the ceiling and shows varying patterns that alter to the music also... i'll try to get some pics tonight!!

    As for whats next... in terms of interior... new gear knob, handbrake and steering wheel.

    but firstly i think i'm gonna get a new engine with a few bits n bobs added to it and possibly get my front bumper, grill and bonnet.

    i got it from fabric warehouse in plymouth! The gaitors are genuine leather and were a bargain at £39... if anyone is interested pm me and i'll put u through to the guy that can do them (all u do is send him ur original ones along with a cheque and he'll make them up in a coloured leather with any colour stitching!!). The pillars and mirrors plates are covered in leatherette, fake imitation leather, however from the front it looks and feels the same!! That was about £3.50 for 1x2m.
